dianne feinstein is wanting and start looking at her website, that is the kind of thing that i think is biting off a little more than you can chew and using a crisis, not letting a crisis go to waste. let's take on the gun control issue. >> i think there will be an effort to pass more reasonable gun laws than what we have today. i don't know what it will look like. the president has a committee looking at it led by joe biden. >> laura: another biden committee. isn't he still tracking the stimulus? that is the last thing he was in charge of tracking was the stimulus bill. the summer of recovery. >> on this and many other issues a question of how does the republican house react? >> laura: he will take it to the people and do the perpetual campaign on that. >> plenty more ahead as "the factor" moves along. >>> a newspaper facing intense criticism as one blogger tries to get even with the paper. >>> supreme court justice sonia sotomayor hands another setback sotomayor hands another setback to the contraception with the spark cash card from capital one, sven gets great rewards for his sma
ban, quote, unquote, is something that dianne feinstein had in the works in the immediate aftermath of the election even before the newtown massacre occurred. >> you know something, michelle, what really strikes me is it's very interesting, we broke, and rightly so, our presidentings, our politicians, hollywood stars, they all have armed guards protecting them. we protect our money with armed guards. but when anybody mentioned maybe protecting children in our school system with armed guards, they are viewed as extremists. you mentioned exploit ago tragedy here. is there any law that could have been passed that would have prevented this from happening? anything you can think of? >> well, look. connecticut already had a so-called assault weapons ban and it didn't stop that monster from doing what he did. these kind of massively restrictive gun control laws certainly don't stop the bloodshed in obama's chicago, which we talked about last week, or in washington d.c. where so many citizens are not protected by armed guards the way that the privileged elites on capitol hill or eelites on
to say five or so bullets, willing to go after what feinstein is pushing, dianne feinstein, something on assault weapons. is there something he can go for and win because it seems to me losing will not get him any points. your thoughts? >> i think he's clearly announced that's the direction he's going to go. look, when you have an event like this, i'm very pro-second amendment, but when you see something like this occur, it causes you to think through in terms of your beliefs, do you continues to hold those beliefs given what happened. i still do, and obviously the president is going -- >> what's the smart move though? is it magazine side, mental health and -- >> you just got to it. i would suggest where he can make some significant process is the mental health side of it. when you look at what happens to gabby giffords, at virginia tech. >> give me john hinckley. something on limiting the size of these magazines, getting them down to, say, five or so bullets. willing to go after what feinstein's pushing, dianne feinstein, something on assault weapons. is there something he can go for
is how he is protected. the hypocrisy is astounding. other democrats, dianne feinstein came out and said the national guard should be at schools. i think -- >> greg: boxer. >> andrea: i thought it was feinstein. >> greg: same thing. >> kimberly: california. >> andrea: i think it should be left to localities. it shouldn't be a federal mandate or the national guard. last time was eisenhower. some neighbors need it more than others. >> bob: a lot of schools have armed policemen around the country. >> greg: wealthy students. >> bob: mostly in poor neighborhoods in a lot of cities. in utah you can carry in a concealed gun. nra is -- >> greg: no, no. they are talking about the officers which is why the crime dropped in new york city schools they have a school safety program with police officers there. >> greg: i'm not sure that it follows the same program or pattern as new york. >> bob: not like new york. you come back to chicago but these are gang-drug related wars in chicago. >> kimberly: so is it okay? he is not doing a good job. >> bob: it's the drug wars. >> eric: so are you saying don't
carrie reed has problems from new york like dianne feinstein of california, and 250 will be a big pill to swallow. this is a fiscal cliff that we can have 50 days, 60 days down the road. it does not fix the problem if you will have these taxes on $250,000 and above. as rich edson said, this is going to be another deadline in congress has to have. i think everyone needs to get comfortable with the fact that we are going to have these kinds of stopgap last-second deals. gerri: okay, let's get tyler in here too, are republican strategist. is there any common ground can be found here? i mean, this seems to me like a last-ditch effort. let me tell you what it when it was announced today that there was going to be a meeting at 3:00 o'clock from expectations went through the roof. i think people thought something really big was going to happen at the end of the day. the president is saying that he is modestly optimistic. maybe you would be something by december 31. what do you make of it? >> he is modestly optimistic about no new changes here. you know, the country needs a leader. no matter w
of the union. meanwhile, california senator dianne feinstein's planning to introduce a bill had a would ban assault weapons as expected. conservative groups are already taking aim at it. on the drudge report, for example, one headline reads civil war senate to go for handguns. now, we were just talking about conservative rhetoric on a different civil war earlier. let's put war aside. let's put the militant language aside and let's talk about what is happening here, maggie. as you know, people follow this debate remember the original assault weapons ban which was itself considered very cosmetic. it was essentially at bottom a ten-year hiatus. it didn't take guns out of circulation. interest didn't deal with the gun show loopholes, background checks, lot of the issues that have come up after this mass murder i mentioned. and even that passed by just two votes. what's different now? >> well, what's different now is we had a spate of these shootings. what's different now frank sly 20 dead children. it is unimaginable, unimaginable, i think, for anybody. what's also different is the nra which ha
is down 90. senator dianne feinstein introduces her proposed assault weapons ban. the gun control debate will be a huge issue in the new year but for gun stores it means sales are spiking even more so than after the elections. dozens of assault rifles are flying off the shelves by the hour. we will talk to a gun store owner with an extraordinary rise in sales at 10:47. today vladimir putin banned americans from adopting russian children. he doesn't like america's criticism of russia's human rights record. here is my take. this is cruel. thousands of young lives will be spending crude orphanages, thousands of american parents will lose the child they hoped to law as their own. this is a disgrace. america is a very generous country. you are not told this often enough but it is true and it is particularly evident in the adoption process. i don't have the exact number but it is close to a million foreign-born for children adopted into american homes. think of that. all those youngsters who now fraud, think of the generosity of the adopting parents who opened homes and hearts, another race or
the legislation. >> but there won't be more disclosure because that got voted down. dianne feinstein, the democrat who chairs the senate intelligence committee, warned that shedding more light on who is being surveilled would you wo destroy the wire tapping program which she says has worked well. >> in four years, 100 arrests to prevent something from happening in the united states. some of which comes from this program. so i think it's a vital program. >> conservative analyst says a wide dragnet is worth the cost. >> let's suppose you're a pakistani, you don't have your green card, you call your uncle, yes, you could get caught up and maybe if he's a member of the taliban there's going to be somebody in the federal government who thinks we need to ask some questions of this person. >> but if you're the person here talking to the uncle and you're caught up in this -- >> you're not caught up in the sense that you're going to jail, in the sense that anything bad is going to happen to you. >> but there are concerns about that. civil libertarian julian sanchez points out that the national security age
're seeing dianne feinstein there on the senate floor. it is vacant on the house side. so in truth how much is really going to get done? >> well, gregg, a lot of this negotiations are really taking place between the leadership levels right now. we don't really have to worry about what is happening on the house floor. it's about what is going on at the white house. now, the president today is going to meet with congressional leaders from both parties, both chambers. they will sit down. they will talk about a potential deal. the president might offer something that maybe the republicans could go for. it wouldn't be a sweeping deal. gregg: like what? >> might be something smaller. well, it would be something that could potentially avoid the major tax hikes coming in january. that is the most politically treacherous for these members. they need to find a way to stop taxes going up for everybody. if there is a deal it will probably focus on the range of taxes that are coming. gregg: susan, the house passed a bill that extends all the tax cuts. the senate passed a bill that extends it for everybo
